Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy is currently one of the biggest stars in the entertainment industry now and like it always is with A-list celebrities, details of their personal lives make it to the news. As Burna Boy’s latest album African Giant is rocking the media all over the globe, his romantic affair with British rapper and singer, Stefflon Don is equally causing an internet sensation. You can’t search for Burna Boy on the internet without Stefflon Don’s name popping up.
While their relationship is still relatively new, it appears to be going really strong. The power couple met in Ghana when Stefflon Don went to watch the Anybody singer’s performance after missing her flight. It’s been a long wild ride for both lovers ever since, from their viral ‘cuddled-up’ picture to Steflon’s plantain and bread sandwich to the whole issue about Burna having a big ‘joystick.’
But is it all for a show, just for the sake of trending? To satisfy the usual craving for sizzling hot celebrity romance that fans always have? Fans have been wondering. After all, it’s the world of showbiz where hooking up to draw and keep the media’s attention is quite common. The romance between Burna Boy and Stefflon Don could merely be a publicity stunt, nothing more.
Well, from all indications, it isn’t a business strategy. A few months from now, you may start addressing Stefflon Don as Mrs. Stefflon Don Ogulu. Yea, you read that right! Burna Boy has publicly claimed stefflon as his ‘wifey.’ ‘No be by mouth,’ you are right, Stefflon could end up being his baby mama instead of his wife, true! But that will be somewhat surprising given that Burna Boy’s recent statement about his relationship with the drop-dead gorgeous diva suggests he is in for the long run:
“It’s not the business part of us; it’s our life.”
The African Giant declared on Hot 97 FM, an American radio station. He went on to reveal what his future plans with Stefflon Don are and how his bae makes him feel, adding that their relationship will cease to be in everyone’s face from now on:
“I’m trying to make it right because I don’t want to bring no kid into this life and everyone is disturbing the kid and looking or wondering what’s Steflon Don and Burna Boy’s kid doing. I want to raise a kid the way I was raised.”
“It’s lovely (being with Stefflon Don) I don’t know how to explain it. It’s just that I try to now kind of like keep it between us. I don’t want to be putting our thing out there in front of everybody anymore. Like you’d be there and you can see it but I don’t want to put it out there for everyone,”
Burna Boy, although there’s ‘boy’ attached to his name, seems to be a real man who knows exactly what he wants and goes for it. His music has been consistent so far, he’s been faithful to Afropop, the genre that birthed his love for music. So it is only to be expected that he will stick it out with the woman he claims to love.
